Joan Cusack in the role as Granny Weatherwax? Saw her in war.inc not long ago, and it just sort of hit me that the way she played that part was a bit...well, grannyish...the way I see Granny that is.

Any thoughts folks??

I like this lady, Ellie Haddington for the part. She was in Foyle's War and I immediately thought she's make a great Granny.



Joan Cusack seems a bit too young for the part to me - although she could be made to look older and she does have the blue eyes. :)

Joan Cusack actually looked a lot older than that in War.inc, but don't know if she looks older in herself or was made up to look older.
Havn't seen Ellie Haddington in anything, but she seems to have the right look for the part, yes :)

A lot of "looks" in this reply, couldn't think of any other word to use instead :oops:

You mean Jane Horrocks?



Yes she's be good, but how about Emma Chambers from The Vicar of Dibbley?

Thanks Tony. Emma Chambers has the 'look' for Magrat, but i don't think she is tall enough

I think Tony has it about right for both of those. I suspect David Jason will be playing Nanny Ogg :rolleyes:

Doh! We'd have to have Buster Merriweather as Granny then?!!!!!!!!!!! Although he's more Agnes shaped.... :twisted:

Actually Anjelica Houston would be pretty good as one of the coven - does anyone remember her in the Witches?


The real Anjelica :twisted:

I do indeed. And she's a bit weird (wyrd) looking whatever part she plays. :laugh:
